I recently had the pleasure of giving ZenSweet’s gluten-free and sugar-free products a whirl. ZenSweet products can be incorporated into your paleo or keto diet. Their products are sweetened with monk fruit and do not contain any refined sugars or wheat products. The great thing about ZenSweet baking mixes is that they will taste like they were made from scratch but the mixes only need 1 or 2 ingredients to be created and the final product tastes completely homemade! I was very impressed with the chocolate chip cookie mix that I started out with on my ZenSweet product venture. Keep reading to learn more and then enter the giveaway to win a variety pack of baking mixes and monk fruit sweetener.
All about ZenSweet
ZenSweet is a brand for the health nuts (like myself) that are out there reading. Their products contain 3 natural ingredients:
There are three all natural ingredients in ZenSweet: erythritol, soluable prebiotic fiber, and monk fruit. Erythritol is a naturally occurring sweetener found in some foods, including pears, grapes, and watermelon. Inulin is a soluble, prebiotic fiber. Monk fruit is a small round green gourd grown in China and northern Thailand, and is 300 times sweeter than sugar. (source)
ZenSweet measures and tastes just like sugar but without all of the guilt! ZenSweet products are low-calorie and also have a low glycemic index.
ZenSweet products can easily be incorporated into a paleo, vegan, low-sugar, or keto diet.
What is monk fruit?
I am new to this world of monk fruit so I had to do a little digging and research this. I am intrigued! The monk fruit is a sweet, small melon that originates in Asia. It was first cultivated over 800 years ago and its name came from the Buddhist monks that first cultivated this gem!
There are zero calories in monk fruit and the monk fruit is actually 20 times sweeter than regular fruit juices. The monk fruit is gaining in popularity quickly due to the latest health crazes that cut down on refined sugars.
You can find out more about the monk fruit HERE and watch the informative video below. Monk fruit is something that your entire family can enjoy and benefit from.
ZenSweet Monk Fruit Sweetener
This was my first time giving monk fruit a whirl and I gotta say… I am a huge fan! The first time I tried the Monk Fruit Sweetener was in my coffee. I did not notice any sort of weird or funky aftertaste in my coffee. Heck yeah! I have tried Stevia many times and, to me, I really notice a heavy aftertaste with it. Not the case with this monk fruit sweetener!
You will love this ZenSweet Monk Fruit Sweetener and you will find yourself replacing all of your sugar with this. The Monk Fruit Sweetener measures like sugar with a 1:1 ratio. Next time you are in need of sugar reach for a bag of this! I even got my sugar-addicted hubby to use this in his coffee and he was quite pleased with it.
Vegan, Non-GMO, Low Carb, Paleo, & Keto Friendly Baking Mixes
The first baking mix that I decided to try out was ZenSweet’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Baking Mix. The recipe ingredients are simple: just one egg and some butter (I used ghee). The recipe instructions were also very simple and easy to use. I used my KitchenAid stand mixer to whip up my batch of cookie dough. If you are following a vegan diet, ZenSweet provides vegan cooking/baking instructions.
Because I love to have my chocolate chip cookies a little extra chocolatey, I decided to snazz up this batch of cookie dough with some Lily’s Sweets Dark Chocolate Chips.
Lily’s Sweets was an excellent choice because their chocolate chips are sugar-free and sweetened with stevia. The chocolate chips are made with only all-natural ingredients, are vegan, and non-GMO.
Each bag of ZenSweet’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Baking Mix can create 12 cookies. I love my cookies to be on the bigger side so I made a tray of 8 fats ones. If you make a tray of twelve cookies each cookie will be only 60 calories. Each chocolate chip cookie will contain only 1g of sugar per serving. Also, each cookie contains only 3g of net carbs! You seriously can’t beat that guys!
I am all about eating foods that are guilt-free and taste great!
This ZenSweet Snickerdoodle Cookie Mix is for cookie fans that love the flavors of a sugar cookie that is laced with cinnamon. This baking mix is gluten-free (and paleo), keto, vegan, low-carb, and non-GMO. These cookies are only 3 grams of net carbs per serving and each cookie is only 60 calories.
The ZenSweet Brownie Mix is another simple and easy mix to prepare. To make the brownies you will need some unsweetened yogurt. If you want to keep it paleo or vegan simply use some non-dairy unsweetened yogurt to whip up this batch of sugar-free, low-carb brownies. You will need an 8×8 pan to create these brownies and each bag of mix will result in 12 delicious, moist, dark chocolate fudgy brownies. Each brownie is only 60 calories and contains 0g of sugar!
I am really looking forward to giving this ZenSweet Vanilla Cupcake Mix a whirl! I decided that I am going to order a bag of Swerve’s confectioner’s sugar-replacement to make a creamy and dreamy sugar-free buttercream frosting. You can think of this cupcake mix as a blank canvas and use your imagination to come up with a cool cupcake, whatever your heart desires!
When my sweet tooth is calling ZenSweet is going to be one of my new go-to brands to satisfy my sugar cravings. I have been into clean eating for a while and after Halloween, I ended up taking a turn for the worse! Oh my! I really need to get back on track and on-board the clean eating train. One of my new year resolutions was to cut back on my sugar intake and I feel that ZenSweet can allow me to do that.
Their sweetener is perfect for coffee and their baking mixes are perfect for your next baking project. The monk fruit that ZenSweet uses in their products is, perhaps, the best sugar replacement I have discovered. You won’t miss the sugar when you use ZenSweet!
